I don't know about " the number of cases that still remain unanalysable
after these optimisations have taken place" ; one useful source would be
"Effectiveness of data dep. analysis" by Maydan & Lam, or Maydan's PhD
thesis (ftp suif.stanford.edu, anonymous, etc).
Feautrier's PIP ("Parametric Integer Programming", 1988, or "Dataflow
analysis of array and scalar references", IJPP '91 no 1) runs (from the
beginning) in symbolic mode ; Pugh's work (Omega test and following - ftp
cs.umd.edu) also covers symbolic mode.
Then, you have Thomasset & Lichnewsky's "Introducing symbolic problem
solving techniques in the dependence testing phase of a vectorizer" in
Hope this helps... Thanks for posting other info.
